The Curse Has Lifted!

I am feeling better about my three failed attempts to get Phish tickets through their ticket lottery-thing and the public onsales. When the band announced the additional late summer tour dates, I decided to give it one more chance and try for Merriweather Post tickets.

The miracle Hampton ticket must've changed my luck, because according to my checking account I have been charged. it looks like I won the lottery! See ya in the forest this August!

Natalie MacLean's Drinks Matcher

I know this isn't music-related, but wine, food & music are all things that bring me a lot of pleasure. This little widget thingy is just too cool. Let's face it, not everyone is a sommelier. I find myself particularly stumped when pairing wine with ethnic dishes. This tool will definitely come in handy. I was also impressed by the fact that she suggested beer when it was the proper choice (fried chicken, for example).
